Takamachi's Elder Son is the Son of the Sage of the Eight Paths.
Though His Father's Death, He suffers greatly on the inside because he has practically lost his father due to the end of the Era of Eight Paths. He bore no ill-will towards the world. He believed that people could accept and understand each other.
Takamachi's Elder Son greatly resembles his father with his light blond hair, a fair complexion, blue eyes and wears jam jar glasses. His typical attire consists of an 1800's, higher class, London-style outfit with long white sleeves, ending in purple cuffs, and purple shorts. These are accompanied with purple military style boots which end in steel toecaps, a gentlemen's purple tophat which covers his head, and a short purple cape which is attached to his body by a metal fixture in the shape of an 'X' and has a sort of cowbell hanging from it.
When he was very young, he wore a purple collar, long sleeved shirt with an orange tie, black shorts, and brown shoes.

He inherited the Sage's eyes, his powerful chakra and spiritual energy. He believed that force and strength were the key to peace. When the Sage was on his deathbed, he chose the elder son to carry on his dream of establishing peace throughout the world. The older son mourns deeply for his Father, consumed by hatred and envy after their father's death, the elder son noted that if he were to be separated from the Hatred, he would be dead because he was a jinchūriki. Lernaean Hydra told the Elder Son that he reminded it of the Sage of the Eight Paths, bringing the elderly son to tears. This leads to the birth of the Five Shinobi of Eight Paths.
